Shrimp and Lemon Skewers with Feta-Dill Sauce
Source: Food & Wine
1/2 cup greek yogurt (I used Fage yogurt)
1 scallion, white and green parts, thinly sliced
4 large garlic cloves, minced
2 1/2 Tbs finely chopped fresh dill
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
2 lemons, cut into 12 wedges each
Salt and Pepper to taste
Start your grill. In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt, scallions, 1/4 of the garlic and 1/2 tbs of the dill. Stir in feta, mashing it slightly. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine the remaining garlic, 2 tbs of dill and olive oil. Add the shrimp and lemons, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Thread 4-5 shrimp and 2 lemon wedges onto a skewer. Season with salt and pepper and grill over medium-hot grill, turning occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skewers to a platter and serve immediately with feta sauce.
I served this with a side of Angel Hair Pasta with Chile Lemon & Arugula but cut way back on the spices as a certain little girl of ours does NOT like the spicy! Hope you enjoy this super simple and yummy meal!
